Hey Dudley D.

Always liked LTGTR I felt like it was a perfect fit for the band at the time.

Yeah the 'Wonderful World' in Richmond was stellar!
That brings back some great memories.

I like that Earl King -lots of cool lines
"I love you like a miner loves gold"
"I love you like a flag on a pole"
"Baby gonna buy you a diamond ring, shake that thing"
"Turn your lamp down low"
Guitar work is really nice!
And that fat fuzzy bass sound.

Louis Jordan
"When your dead, you are done"
"Want to have a good time, got to go out spend some cash"
"Don't let nobody play me cheap, I got fifty cents more than I am gonna keep"
That is some way back in the day music.

There was also some confusion in the Dead taping and set list realm because Brent had that song "GOOD TIMES-blues"

I guess that got solved because now the tune goes by 'Never trust a woman'.

Ha , forgot about that closer to home one !
I have also seen "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue", (Bob Dylan), ,when it is supposed to be "It's All Over Now" (Bobby Womack/The Rolling Stones) .
And how many ways have we seen Iko Iko written . At least that is always the same song .
I highly recommend Louis Jordan, one of the progenitors of R&B, and most of his material is pretty funny, in an era when good music cold be funny, and not dismissed as a "novelty" record .
